Garment Division

From the Textile to the finished Garment

It is one thing is to design a garment, it is another to entirely shift the limits of that which is imaginable and achievable. It’s one thing to industrialise a product, it’s another to renegotiate and expand the potentiality of the available technical arsenal. Beste has chosen to address both sides. It is precisely by working in research and development that the Garment division cultivates its own originality and transforms it into a most efficient commercial leverage.

First of all, this is made possible by the completely vertical nature of the group. The capacity to keep both the textile design and garment development under the one umbrella enables the materials to be already structured according to their use. More precisely, to consider or modify them on the basis of the final product’s aesthetic and performance-related requirements.

Nonetheless, any significant leap forward (would not be possible) without adequately extensive, evolved and well structured technical resources. The internal availability of equipment such as laser cutters, modern textile welding machines, dyeing vats, and a sophisticated colour management laboratory consents to transform innovation into a gaze which continually shifts from assembly features to finishing and garment treatments, to aspects of confection to those pertaining to the nature of the materials, and vice versa.

Garment Construction Laboratory

Quality and efficiency of a product do not depend only on the quality of the design but also on the tools used. When the tools are ill-suited, obsolete or, even worse, inexistent, the only thing to do is invent new tools. Beste’s garment manufacturing emerged exactly for that reason in the spring of 2015; that is, with the objective to create a production environment that is finally capable of producing a new generation of garments. The partial obsolescence of traditional garment construction techniques, the integration of laser sewing machines, sealing machines, presses and ultrasound machines, and – finally – the ability to translate this technical equipment for use in the complex world of luxury products all represent the unique features of this small laboratory. Staffed with 30 employees specialized in different areas, this laboratory has been able to fill a not-so-evident yet real void in the national and international textile and garment industry.

It is impossible to master production processes without knowing them, and one cannot fully know them without working with them directly; or rather, without that everyday sum of trails, errors and successes that build the concrete foundation of an industrial evolution. Beste’s history, with its driven journey towards verticalization, rests on and is guided by these premises.

Beste’s manufacturing plant does not only include traditional and next-generation machinery for garment assembly but also extends to garment finishing machinery. Dyeing and washing tumblers, with the infinite variations on these machines, are a precious resource as production processes become ever the more complicated and less linear.
